Last Wednesday evening, at least 200 people showed up to Tyler Elementary School to hear from four teams—-a list sliced down from 10—-vying to redevelop Hine Junior High School near Eastern Market.
Already, there is a neighborhood watchdog group EMMCA: Eastern Market Metro Community Association, which was established to ensure this development meets their set criteria (and boy do they have criteria!).
Several meetings have been scheduled to solicit community input and comments, according to ANC 6B Chair David Garrison, who spoke at the beginning of the meeting.
On June 23, there will be a hearing at the Old Naval Hospital at 7 p.m. to which the four development teams will be invited. And the following Tuesday, on June 30, the there will be another ANC meeting to collect testimony from individuals. The ANC will then make a recommendation by July 1. Here are the proposals:
Plan 1:The Looks Familiar Plan, The Bozzutto Group/Scallan Properties/Lehr Jackson Associates/E.R. Bacon Development, LLC/Blue Skye Development/CityStrategy, LLC
Plan 2:The Plan Without a Plan:National Leadership Campus/Western Development Group
Plan 3:The Fancy Stuff Plan: StreetSense/DSF/Menkiti Group
Plan 4: The All-Knowing Plan: Stanton Development Corporation/Eastbanc Inc./Autopark Inc./The Jarvis Companies/Dantes Partners
